The approach to Wangduephodrang is dramatic. On the left ridge the contours of the dzong etches an unforgettable sky-line. On the right, the well known Rinchengang terraces slope steeply up beyond the tree-line. On the valley floor, the Tsangchu meanders deceptively as it gathers momentum for the rapids towards Tsirang.

The Crown Prince Dasho Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck formally opened a new element in this landscape: the Wangdue-Tsangchu Zam, which is widely seen as a blend of tradition and modernity, also representative of Bhutan's development philosophy.
